Compassion and community spirit soared to new heights today at Cliff Park Academy, as staff and students united for two heartwarming fundraising events in support of James Paget Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. A static bike ride challenge, spanning an impressive 90km, and a delectable Bake Sale at the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) brought the academy together for a cause close to their hearts.
The brainchild of Mr. Shuffle, a dedicated staff member at Cliff Park Academy, today’s events carry a deeply personal significance. Mr. Shuffle’s own daughter was born prematurely at just 27 weeks. “The unwavering and life-saving care provided by the NICUs at James Paget University Hospital and the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital have played a pivotal role in ensuring my daughter’s well-being. She is still in hospital but the care she continues to receive is second to none.”
To express their heartfelt gratitude and support for the invaluable care received, all funds raised from today’s activities will be donated to these exceptional healthcare institutions. The initiative stands as a profound testament to the strength of the Cliff Park Academy community and their unwavering commitment to giving back to those who have made a difference.
“At Cliff Park Academy, we believe in the power of unity and compassion,” expressed Harry French, Principal. “Today’s events showcase our students’ and staff’s dedication to supporting the NICUs and expressing gratitude for their remarkable care. It has been a fun, although tiring, day for those of us who took part in the cycle race. We certainly earned our cake this afternoon!”
The fundraiser witnessed an outpouring of support from the Cliff Park Academy community, exemplifying the power of coming together for a shared cause. The day was filled with smiles, laughter, and a deep sense of purpose as individuals from all parts of the school community contributed to this worthy endeavour.
